One giraffe as requested.

Thanks to Chris Bell and Nick Hilditch for their support and donation. They run Irkafirka, you should check it out. They draw random tweets into cartoons and have promised to do one for Jack. When we get it, we'll put it on our website, thank you so much.

Russell Howard’s Good News

Russell Howard’s Good News

So it turns out Jack was on Russell Howard’s Good News tonight (BBC3). I’ll be honest, we knew nothing of it until our friend Jo sent us a tweet. I was about to go to bed and I was turning off the computer when TweetDeck, Google Mail and JustGiving went absolutely bonkers.

In the space of 30 mins we have:

  • 70+ new Facebook fans
  • 30+ new Twitter followers
  • 38 donations on our JustGiving website plus the promise of more in the morning
  • Increased our fundraising total by about £300

Big thank you to Russell Howard, Mark Iddon and all the team for a lovely surprise and for helping our cause. Jack, Toby & Noah are all tucked up in bed but I will tell them what happened in the morning. I was so excited I woke up Rose (Mummy), she wasn't happy but was OK once I explained why.

In case you missed the show, here it is on iPlayer–Russell Howard’s Good News (Series 4, Episode 6). Jack is about 2 mins from the end.
